    I also have a screen door into my sewing room. Of course the cats tore up the screen but I out-smarted them. I put plastic latice over the door. They can climb the door but still can't get in. Having the door "open" also helps me to hear the phone in the livingroom when it rings.

    I have a baby gate on my sewing room. We don't have animals but I have 3 little grandsons and my sewing room is terrifically tempting. Too many sharp things, hot things, and machines.

    This reminded me of a friend. When her son was a baby, they put a screen door on his bedroom door to keep the cat out and to be able to hear him. So what you did is not so strange.

    Thank you

    When a friend's daughter and toddler grandkids moved back home while daddy was overseas, Elaine put a screen door on the playroom. Elaine and her daughter were able hear whenever the kids needed something, the kids had a nice large playroom, and best of all... the toys stayed in one location. Elaine insists it kept her sane for the 2 years they lived with her. I thought it was a clever solution because Elaine is one of those overly fussy "no, don't touch that.." sort of person.

    I may have to consider that instead of a baby gate for the grandkids. :-)

    I sooo had to laugh about this, it conjured up such great mind-pictures.

    I think it is a great idea. Wish i would have thought of it a long time ago. Have 3 cats that all think they should be in my sewing room. We have a spare screen door in the attic so BF will have to go look for it! (One more thing on his "honey-do list".

    What a great idea for you! It wouldn't work for me though, my three furkids would sit outside it and howl till I opened it for them!! I used to have one who climbed right up the screen if I didn't let her in fast enough. Had to go outside and unhook her alla time. I'd give anything to unhook her just once more ...

    Great idea. We all need a little alone time. Do you have a suggestion for 36 & 33 yr. old sons? They both live in the same community and always pop in to eat!!

    I have a friend that has one between her living room and dinning room. works for them. I see nothing wrong with it, may use the same idea when we move and get two dogs to go with the two cats we have now.
